Reference Name MLI97483

Name:
War Memorial, Broad Street, Stamford

Summary:
War Memorial, Broad Street, Stamford.

Location:
STAMFORD, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
The memorial is situated against the stone terrace wall south-east of the chapel of Browne's Hospital. The memorial was dedicated on 7th June 1920, after a public subscription organised by the War Memorial Committee from November 1919. The memorial comprises a plaque on the terrace wall, over a stone plinth. The monument features in a set of photographs taken during a visit to assess the impact of proposed alterations. The memorial is attached to Browne's Hospital which is a listed building (see PRN30626). The memorial should, therefore, also be regarded as being listed. {1}

Stamford war memorial consists of a tablet bearing the names of the First World War fallen, mounted in a framework of Clipsham stone. Unveiled in 1920, the tablet is affixed to the wall of Browne's Hospital on Broad Street. It is now accompanied by a second plaque which has the names of those who died in the Second World War and the Malayan Emergency inscribed on it. {2}
